The Last House is a five-bedroom boutique property on a secluded beach on Sri Lanka’s south coast. The architectural swan song of Geoffrey Bawa, this two-storey seaside villa promises a luxurious, chic and relaxing stay; day beds stylishly furnish pillared verandas, rooms are cooled by ocean breezes, and doors and windows in tropical hues frame views of the garden and the sea.
The house is laid out in a horseshoe shape with two bedrooms on the upper floor of the main building and a further three located in an adjacent building beside a courtyard swimming pool. The two upstairs balcony-wrapped bedrooms – one double and a twin – are booked on an exclusive basis only, which makes this spacious residence ideal for couples and families alike.
Space flows seamlessly between indoor and outdoor areas offering plenty of places to relax privately or dine. The hotel is staffed by an efficient team and the chef serves up some of the region’s best Asian-fusion cuisine.
